A comprehensive safety program can have far-reaching impacts. At Milliken, when we prioritize a culture of safety, we know we are protecting not only our associates but caring for their families as well. We can see this safety emphasis then spread to our communities through both the influence and actions of our associates and their families.
Many of today’s leading organizations emphasize the importance of corporate social responsibility — being keenly aware of opportunities to enhance their local communities. There are countless ways to accomplish this, from day-to-day volunteering events to “big picture” strategic efforts.
The holidays are a time of reflection: reflection on a year of accomplishments, a look at what’s to come in the new year, and finally, a sense of togetherness. The holidays at Milliken represent a number of time-honored year-end traditions celebrated by our global communities, discovering even more meaningful connections we share with one another.
Coinciding with the change in season, the holidays mark a time of both thankfulness and reflection. We find that our most impactful innovations are ones that meaningfully connect to the world around us, and the same holds true in our relationships.
On November 11, we honor all those who have served, and continue to serve and protect citizens around the world.
Every August serves as a reminder that students are heading back to the classroom. As we gear up for back-to-school this year, we reflect on the foundational importance of education in building for the future. Many community organizations are dedicated to educational growth and success, and at Milliken, we have long been inspired by their work, particularly those in our global home of Spartanburg County.
The landscape at Milliken is at once steadfast and ever-changing. Our core strengths are firmly planted, and as such, allow us to branch out into new and exciting horizons. Throughout Milliken’s 153 years, we have embraced change as part of our global company culture.

Observed each year in June, National Safety Month “focuses on reducing leading causes of injury and death at work, on the road and in our homes and communities.” Employing nearly 7,000 associates across the globe and with a presence of more than 40 manufacturing plants internationally, Milliken keenly understands how safety forms the foundation of our work across our divisions. Our legacy in safety, championed from the beginning by the highest levels of leadership, is more than just a protocol — it is a means of protecting our associates to ensure the well-being of our entire community.
